I love artichokes! Who knew a thistle could be so tasty? I sometimes wonder about the first person to try an artichoke, were they really adventurous or really hungry? What about the first person to eat a lobster? Had to be pretty brave, I’m thinking….
Anyway, try this sometime when you are craving a thistle!
It’s simple, tasty and impressive. You can’t really ask for much more out of a recipe.
- 2 artichokes
- ¼ C champagne vinegar
- 1 clove garlic, chopped
- 1 t dried basil
- ½ cup olive oil
- Steam the artichokes until soft
- Blend the rest of the ingredients in a blender
Easy, peasy. I use a pressure cooker to steam my artichokes because it takes so long to do it at this altitude.
serve warm, it’s a nice snack, appetizer or light lunch…
